Domestic Freight

Domestic Freight

For most manufacturing or distribution businesses, the cost of domestic freight has a material impact on the bottom line. Customer expectations continue to increase and the ability to satisfy their requirements can often be a company’s competitive advantage.

Despite the importance of these services, the visibility and management of logistics and transport is sub-optimal in many cases. Existing systems and processes often limit the ability to access meaningful information to assess and improve performance and control expenditure. In addition, standard procurement processes only deliver one-off cost benefits since the operational processes and systems are rarely considered and challenged.

Innovation is the key to unlocking the optimal solution to access the available savings and service outcomes.
